Hyundai Vision T Concept Is What We’d Really Like The 2021 Tucson To Look Like

Update: Check out the live images of the Hyundai’s Vision T concept from the 2019 LA Auto Show in the gallery below

Hyundai is looking to the future with its Vision T SUV Concept, which celebrated it’s world premiere in California this week.

It is a plug-in hybrid compact crossover that’s meant to express the Korean brand’s Sensuous Sportiness global design language while also looking to balance its eco-lifestyle focus with the environment in which it is driven.

While Hyundai hasn’t specified any interior or powertrain characteristics, other than it is a plug-in hybrid, its styling obviously reflects everything we’ve seen from previously-spied 2021 Hyundai Tucson prototypes, from the front fascia to certain angles and creases found on the bodywork. We don’t need to tell you that the production Tucson will be a lot less visually aggressive.

It measures 181.5 inches (4,610 mm) in length, 79.3 inches (1,938 mm) in width, stands 67.1 inches (1,704 mm) tall, and has a 110.4 inches (2,804 mm) long wheelbase.

“We pursue innovative solutions in design and add emotional value to our product experience through sensuous sportiness design language,” said the automaker’s senior VP and head of global design, SangYup Lee.

According to Hyundai, the Vision T’s side profile is meant to convey a continual sense of speed and moving forward, while the long hood, short overhangs and level roofline reflect a “ready-for-anything dynamic.”

Visually, the Hidden Signature Lamp is derived from the Le Fil Rouge concept, while the Parametric Air Shutter is an original developmental feature that actively influences aerodynamics. When stationary, the grille is closed and static, but once the car is in motion, “each individual cell of the grille design continues to move in a prescribed sequence, creating a truly dynamic forward demeanor.”

As for the hidden signature headlights, they hide behind a half-mirror system that has a chromium appearance, transforming into functional lighting on demand. Other design features include the large satin chrome alloy wheels, dark orange brake calipers, glass roof, the passenger side charging port with its sliding cover and more. Also, since there are no exterior mirrors, we assume it would utilize cameras in the same way as the Audi e-tron.
